“Our company’s relationship with CST Group dates back to over 25 years ago, when the original founders first turned to the firm for their financial needs,” says Tommy Cline, CEO and Owner of EAST Group. “CST Group has stuck with us through thick and thin. When the company was going through acquisitions and succession planning, CST was there to give us their expertise and professional guidance. Because the firm offers a wide range of financial services, they have always been able to support all of our needs.”
“CST Group demonstrates a wealth of knowledge unmatched by any accounting firm that I have worked with in the past,” stated Dan Duenkel, Chief Information Officer at Knight Point Systems. “The team makes a tremendous effort to ensure that I understand the entire financial process and all of the federal tax laws involved. Working with CST Group has been nothing but a pleasant experience. The team at CST Group is truly professional and always provides the most accurate and helpful financial advice. I could not ask for more in an accounting firm.”
“Over the years we have worked with CST Group, we have been extremely satisfied and happy with the work they have performed for us,” says GovSource Principal Eric Tedder. “Their vast knowledge of extremely complex IRS codes, compliance regulations, and issues facing government contractors is unmatched. It is through their knowledge, ability to stay ahead of ever-changing protocols, and dedication to our firm that CST Group has been able to save us immense amounts of time and money. Their team is not only professional and responsive, but they are great to work with on a personal level as well.”
“CST Group looked at our situation,” says company Founder, President, and CEO Steve McDonald. “They reviewed three full years of information in just a few short weeks, ultimately helping us make a difficult situation far less painful. They were very creative in their problem solving, and they turned the situation around to the point that we’re now reaping long term benefits from the solution they provided. We’re a small, privately-held company, and so we pay very close attention to our accounting situation. CST Group has a strong understanding of my goals and my company’s goals, and they’ve provided the best, most attentive service of any firm with whom we’ve ever worked. Service sells, and they’re always there in an instant. As their client, I appreciate that level of attention.”
